Oil and Filters

Good oil article, and this stainless, finer-mesh and cleanable oil filter looks pretty good. But $200 is too big an *ouch* durn it.

I just checked out your link.

It seems like snake oil to me. I guess everyone has their own opinion on things but I feel that a paper filter is just fine unless you have a super hot rod. I run good oil and change it at 5k. It seems to me like a bit of hype. I am a fan of the K&N style air filters though. I just do not see the added potential benefit from changing filtering medias.

IMHO

I agree! As long as you are changing your filters regularly, then the only thing that really matters is the oil! I run Shell Rotella T fully Synthetic 5W-40 and a standard Motorcraft paper filter.



I started using synthetic when I lived in Alaska and needed SOMETHING to have the ability to start at 45 below ~ or colder. Dino oil gets too “sticky” at those temps and just won’t let the crank go ‘round…

ive heard people say in the winter its bad to run 10w-30 becasue it is too thick, but I run it even in 0 degree weather
and my truck starts up faster than my parents which was "winterized" so 5w whatever

I run Castrol 10w40 in my Subaru (when it's running), and 15w40 diesel-rated oil in everything else. Better ring lube, stronger film strength, better acid resistance. On my Fords, I use Motorcraft filters, but usually Wix or Napa on everything else. No oil-related issues so far, and the last engine I had to tear into was nice and clean.

Interesting article, but like you said $200 is a big ouch. I've been using Amsoil's DEO Premium Diesel 5W-40 oil in mine.
